Elevate Eldercare

Dec 13, 2023

As we navigate a holiday season set against the backdrop of global and domestic conflict, this 2021 interview with Dr. Edith Eger feels even more vital than ever.

A psychologist and a Holocaust survivor, Dr. Eger has 96 years of direct experience with navigating troubled times – both for herself and in service of others – and her ability to find light in the darkness remains deeply inspiring. After enduring unimaginable cruelty as a Jewish teenager in Europe during World War II, she dedicated her life to helping people process and overcome their own traumas.

This holiday, we could all use a dose of Dr. Eger’s wisdom – including her calls for us to focus on ourselves when the world seems out of control, because we all only have this life to live. By being the best versions of ourselves that we can be, Dr. Eger asserts, we can find stability and happiness in a world that’s always changing, and not always for the better.
